Mariah Mata: Funky

        I feel Funky was most embraced in the 1980‘s with vibrant neon colors and wild hair. I wanted to show how times change, but classic styles always come back. This character is letting out her true self for the photographer, from the big hair to the funky blue mustache. She is embracing her silly side, her love of bright colors, and her individuality. She is comfortable with showing her true colors.

  1. I like the concept, but the image doesn't scream Funky to me. Maybe if the background was a vivid pink or green that would enhance it. The lighting as well seems a little too quite for the concept.

  2. My eyes keep going back to the soft box glare in her sunglasses. Using a white card to block the light will help that. Overall, I think it's a good portrait, a little dark on the right side of the frame. I feel that if she is embracing her love of bright colors, the right side of the frame should be filled in more to show the bright color orange on her shirt.
